." that was the word today from ron barber, who was shot and wounded in the mass shooting in tucson last year that killed six people and wounded 13, including the grievous wounding of congresswoman gabby giffords. ron barber, who took gabby giffords' seat in congress after she stepped down to deal with her injuries. he said today, "as those of us in tucson know, senseless acts such as these tear at the very fabric of a community." mark kelly, gabby giffords' husband said today, "i just spoke with gabby, and she sends her prayers from tucson." in oak creek, wisconsin, where four months ago there was another mass shooting at a sikh temple, another six people gunned down at that temple. a school superintendent there today told the local press that she cried when she heard the news out of newtown, connecticut. she said "we always think it can't happen here, and we pray fervently that it won't. but as we know from our experience this summer, it can happen anywhere." the mayor of aurora, colorado, is still helping his community try to recover from the mass shooting there this summer where 12 people
that died in tucson in the gabby giffords shooting, a lot of people that died, but a 9-year-old i think that died in that. we had a baby killed in the aurora theater. and this is sort of horrific beyond imagination because there's so many young people. we've heard this before. and there is -- you know, there are people saying wait a minute, can we not do anything just as a knee-jerk reaction, we need to think this through. >> the tipping point on these issues whether it's taking on assault weapons or providing more comprehensive mental health or addressing the sort of culture of violence that prompts somebody to do something like this, the tipping point should have happened a long time ago. if this is the tipping point, then we're going to go down to washington and prompt a conversation that's long overdue. you know, a young man grabbed us in his church we were in sobbing saying, don't let this happen again. i think our job here is to not set expectations too high, right. this is complicated. and so we can't solve it with legislation. there are certainly going to be lessons learned. >>

of the tucson shooting this past weekend. and in the wake of that shooting, the tucson shooting, this was the general assessment. gun control dead. a nonstarter. shootings unlikely to change laws. don't expect any changes. that was our random survey of the headlines last january after the tucson shootings. at least if you asked the beltway shooting gods. now it seems like the common wisdom may be less certain. look at the headlines now. and it's more like this. debate on gun control is revived. lawmakers call for tougher gun laws in wake of new town massacre. gun control debate simmers after sandy hook massacre. nobody is saying it's going to be easy for our country to reform its gun laws in the wake of this latest massacre by someone wielding weapons for combat. nobody says it's going to be easy. but anybody saying it will be impossible is either spinning you or they are not paying attention. history proves the change is possible. history proves that change is the only thing that is inevitable. joining us now is the mayor of newark, new jersey, my friend, corey booker. he's als

. he has had practice. >>reporter: absolutely. in tucson, he gave reports for republicans and democrats and independents saying he spoke for an entire nation. it wasn't just speaking for democrats. same after aurora he met the victims in the hospital, folks who survived that shooting at the movie theater. again, he is going through this and that is why he will face treasure in the second term to act. >>bret: thank you, ed. 26 lives were taken inside the school. each of them, of course, young and beautiful. we learn about the children who brought smiles and lit up rooms and the adult, a teacher who died trying to shield her students from gunfire. and others whose actions likely saved likes. the unfathomable loss felt far beyond newtown, connecticut, complete strangers coming from across the country to offer their support and condolences. >> could not sleep last night turn on the news, that matter the channel it is on. the least i can do with the holidays approaching. molly line is live in newtown with more. molly, what are we learning? >>reporter: we are seeing the faces to match with th
in tucson, some of the same people who were there are here today. victims, families, all people crying out for at least at the very least, a dialogue, a sensible, rational conversation, a national discussion where we're not afraid to call it like it is. and that means to bring everybody to the table. that also means, piers, and i think everybody here would probably agree, it means cutting down the strawmen that are raised up when people get freaked out about this conversation. this is not about taking people's guns away. it's not taking the hunters' guns. not about the sporting guns. not about the private protection gun. it is about sensible gun laws. semiautomatic weapons, the kinds of things that make killing industrial strength, and i'll tell you, there is cause and effect. there are other countries which have faced similar such massacres and they have taken procedures, and it's worked. our country, england, in scotland, you know, in 1996, children the same age as the children at sandy hook, 16 6-year-olds and 7-year-olds killed. >> a national handgun ban and incredibly effective. austr

as was kwis quite a grabber. last month i sentenced jar odloughner for his shooting rampage in tucson. judges do not have his kind of communication with the public. so i knew i was holding something extra informatiordina hands when i read this. i knew i was going to hand it over to his judge to make this conservative case as he puts it for a ban. he says that tragedy left six people. the judge said that tragedy left six people dead more than twice the number injured and a community shaken to its core. loughner deserved his punishment but during the sentences i questioned the high capacity magazines like the one that fed his glock and i lamented the ban in 2004 which mow hibted the manufacture and deportation of guns that can hold more than ten rounds of ammunition. the ban wasn't that strin gent. if you already owned it you could keep it. but at least it was something and it says something that half of the nation's deadliest shooting shootings it also says something that it has not been two years later and already six mass shootings have been deadlier. the judge said i'm not a social scientis

with the tucson shooter who everyone spoke about. they had a sense he was psychotic. on guns, the problem is this. unless you are willing to completely disarm the population, as you do in canada or britain or australia did in the 1990's, and that it works and you have a decrease in gun crimes, if you allow grandfather of existing weapons, as would happen with the 1994 assault weapons law, at which time there were 25 million of the high- capacity magazines already in circulation, you do not accomplish anything. the studies of the 10-year experiment with the ban on assault weapons in the 1990's up to 2004 shows it had no effect. >> in april 1968, i was in ebenezer baptist church in atlanta for the funeral of martin luther king. on june of 1968 i was working for robert kennedy when he was murdered. since those two events, more americans have died by firearms than in all the wars this country has popped coming in, or out of combat. guns are crazy. unless we can confront that reality -- is not just a question of training. i do not disagree about mental health. it is absolutely lunacy to have half of t
